I had to loosen the two bolts holding the sleeve part onto the lower control arm to get them seated all the way. Other then that just make sure theres no dirt on the teeth and put some grease on em. Should slide right in. To get the adjusting bolts back in, I had to use a jack to twist it up a little, then put the bolts in, but you may not need to depending on how far you went. DON'T FORGET to tighten the bolts back up on the sleeve part on the control arm before you tighten up the adjusting bolts on the anchor!

So I've finally gotten around to reindexing my torsion bars, but now I can't get it back in. Is there some trick other than hitting it on the anchor end with a soft mallet?

Maybe I got the term wrong. Thought that was called a spindle

I think the torsion bars have already been tweaked once, and I'm worried about giving them too much torque. They are nearly 30 years old after all, and over time, they loose a lot of strength (so I've been told).

Sorry, spindles are still on the outside...

The a arms are just longer and mount the top portion of suspension to the inside of the frame making it easier to adjust for positive camber...

I've heard that factory torsion bars are the way to go. I was gonna get the hd ones too and had a couple guys say that I was better off finding some in a wrecking yard. I just re-indexed mine and I have plenty of spring left. If you're just trying to level it out, I'd just tighten em up a bit. You'll be surprised what a few turns will do.
